I just upgraded my system from 17.04 to 17.10. After the upgrade I have no sound on my system from any output (analog output or hdmi via gpu).

At the sound tab under settings no device is listed.

I have also installed pulse audio but it doesnt start...

I came across other posts on the internet where people have no sound on ubuntu 17.10 but no one posted a solution... Does anybody knows how to fix this? Thank you in advance

  • I accidentaly found that pulseaudio does not start on boot... If I start it manually everything works! Is there any proper solution? – teo6389 Nov 12 '17 at 15:29
  • you can post this as an answer. I just added pulseaudio to the startup applications list. Let's see, if this fixes the problem after the next boot – user907860 Nov 24 '17 at 5:45
  • After I upgrade to 17.10 pulseaudio didn't want to start, so purged it with sudo apt purge 'pulseaudio*' and then I installed all the packages that were removed by that command again. All is working fine now. – Strahinja Kustudic Dec 26 '17 at 14:32
  • I had this problem - Commenting out load-module module-switch-on-connect in /etc/pulse/default.pa worked for me when purging and reinstalling pulseaudio on its own didn't -- hope this helps someone – SteJ Feb 4 '18 at 1:57

You need to update the Linux kernel and install current Mesa driver, i had the same problem here with Radeon RX560 on Ubuntu 17.10, it works! Mesa: https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa Kernel: https://github.com/M-Bab/linux-kernel-amdgpu-binaries
